Medetaranian Style Villas in Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Minutes after we passed several beautiful sandy beaches, we approached the hilltop retreat nestled in a pristine, quiet town just outside Las Terranas. The first thing we noticed, and how can you not!, was the breathtaking views of the lush tropics and the ocean. At the top, the warm caretaker, Jean Cluade, greeted us and carried our bags as we were welcomed by the retreat's very hospitable owners Don and Dianne. 1st impressions being everything, we were thrilled, as were our young children. We immediately walked through the impressively landscaped grounds to the infinity pool overlooking that million dollar view. My wife disappeared to the (again) spectacular and tranquil grotto and terrace perched on the hillside for meditation and yoga. We were in love. Our children were in love. And it only got better. The owners were not only gracious, but also knew everybody in the area and were happy to set up anything, from horseback rides to grand waterfalls, to a thorough rundown of the half dozen different beaches nearby, to having a local fisherman bring an impressive array of fish and lobster caught that day, right to our doorstep. Don and Dianne also happen to be very tuned into the community and have the inside scoop on anything you can imagine. We stayed for 3 weeks. The Villas have an old world Mediterranean feel, and ours had space to spare for our 5 member family. We stayed at a handful of other little places in our 5 week stay, but none compared to here. We can't say enough about it... other than we are going to book it for a month this coming Winter! And I guess that says it all...
Owner's Response: Thank you! After such a raving review, you better plan booking ASAP we will no longer be the best kept secret and potential new guests won't be able to resist will be lining up for next Winter. See you then.

Placido is perfectly situated atop a hill overlooking the jungle, farmer's fields and magnificent sweeping ocean vistas. Beautiful gardens well looked after added to the beauty of the grounds and pool area. The meditation cave is a must see. Even when full the grounds were never crowded, a pleasant change from the all inclusive experience. Don and Diana are absolutely great hosts looking after all our needs. Only a short drive into town but also located close to all the various attractions on the peninsula, We couldn't have asked for a better spot. Janis and I spent a full month there relaxing and decompressing and would return in a moment. We met some great people there who we have kept in contact since. I highly recommend Placido as the perfect place, whether for few days or a longer stay, whether as a couple or a family. It was wonderful. Thank you Don and Diana and say hello to Jean Claude.
Owner's Response: Thank you Both. You are right to point out that MONTE PLACIDO is just short drive to town and in a pastoral setting and strategically located to the pristine beaches and all the things to do.
We called it "Monte Placido" because we always wanted to make sure that ourselves and our guests felt at peace here and yes even when all our 6 properties are rented it still remains very cozy and private.
Please come back

In all ways, Monte Placido is a wonderful vacation spot. Pictures on the website help capture some of the visual impact of its stunning location, beautiful grounds and lovely accommodations. In no way do the pictures say it all. The experience goes far beyond words. The complex is perched on a hill - giving picture postcard views of the surrounding lush hills and valleys with great ocean views. You'll have plenty of privacy on your porch r in your villa but you'll often find congenial company in the social area around the pool. Monte Placido is also a yoga retreat. We were blown away by the facilities of this hidden away retreat. Be sure to visit the cave - even if you aren't into mediation or yoga. You'll find the most picturesque beaches imaginable just a short distance away. The nearby colorful town of Las Terrenas, full of motorbikes, ood shopping and excellent restaurants, is hectic but can be enjoyable for a few hours. But after leavingthe bustle, it is so good to return to the tranquility and beauty of Monte Placido. I can't end this short review without mentioning the great hosts, Don and Diana as well as the excellent staff at Monte Placido.
Owner's Response: Thank you so very much J.... for your review. Just one note for future visitors to Las Terrenas As J.... mentioned being in or close to town may be more convenient but not restful for those seeking peace. As for pristine breaches we have dozen of them. You may need transportation but well worth the drive touring Samana Peninsula.
Thank you again and please come back.

Monte Placido was what we anticipated and more! On the top of a mountain, this villa overlooks the ocean, the forest and more mountains. Jean-Claude and his helper keep the grounds immaculate, rotating from one garden to another...the gardens are gorgeous. Our hosts, Don and Diana, were always helpful and ever available to answer our plethora of questions or find us a taxi to the night club, or a fresh-caught fish for dinner. We stayed in Lilka, a one bedroom unit with spacious rooms, lots of storage, & an incredible view from the large deck. The infinity pool is so pleasant and refreshing with an area to dine if you so desire...you can even bbq your meal there.

Las Terrenas has many restaurants...for every budget & taste. We quite enjoyed our meal at Tam Tam. And for good coffee, grab a seat outside at the Boulangerie and sip on a cafe con leche while watching the activity on the street.
Access to beaches is extremely easy.
Whale Samana is highly recommended as an activity.
Talk to Jennifer at Nativ' Art on Calle Duarte for some local art pieces. She speaks English & is very friendly and helpful.

We were booked for 1 month, & took way too many clothes as it is easy to hand wash & hang to dry. We rented a vehicle from our hosts which made access to everything much easier. The Samana peninsula is as yet undeveloped and a great change from the all-inclusive scene in the D.R. This villa is gated, with watchmen and an attentive watch dog, Bingo. We never felt threatened at any time during our stay...at the villa or in the villages.

Now, of course, no place is perfect. Because we had a unit below us, we had neighbours. Crying babies to start, then a family who allowed their two young boys to scream for long periods of time throughout the day. Not sure how our hosts can deal with this kind of issue, but it was unsettling when we wanted to spend a day around the villa. We noted that our beach visits would have been longer had we had folding chairs provided to take with us. Snorkeling and swimming is awesome, but when you want to hang out or read on the beach, a towel on the sand just doesn't cut it. Maybe something for Don and Diana to include in each unit, or upon request.

Overall, I quite enjoyed my stay, and would recommend (and have) to others to consider Monte Placido as a base for a visit to the Samana peninsula. Try to fly into Samana El Catey though, as it is a mere 45 minutes from Monte Placido.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review that will help future guests.
We did follow your advice and added to our guest book a testimonial chapter so that over time future guests can see read pasts experiences.
Actually, we do have folding beach chairs available on site for our guests. Our fault because we forgot to add this amenity to out guest information book. (FYI to all we do provide automatically beach towels.) As for snorkeling gear, actually we also have some available. Again our fault we failed to add this amenity to to our guest book information. Both chairs and snorkeling will be added to the guest book.
More information on our local airport called Samana (code AZS) served by Jetblue from JFK on Wed. and saturdays and by Air Canada, Westjet and Canjet from Toronto and Montreal.
Our guests that took these flights are enthused (8am depart 2pm by the pool.....
